The Church Of The Virgin Mary – I felt really peaceful
I posted pictures of the statue of the Virgin Mary which was standing in front of the church in a previous post. This time, I’m going to show pictures of the statue of the Virgin Mary which was placed inside the church. The reason why I wrote “placed” was because the statue wasn’t attached to the floor. It was standing on the movable table. That table wasn’t always in the same place. Actually, I went there 5 times, but I could see her only twice. When I saw her for the second time, many worshippers gathered at the church that night. They walked around the church in a procession with the statue of the Virgin Mary carried at between them. So, I couldn’t take any pictures of her at that time.
I took these pictures during my first visit there. Actually, I had never been to any churches until that time, so I found everything new and interesting there. Especially, this statue of the Virgin Mary impressed me. I thought she was really beautiful and elegant. I also wondered why she was trampling a snake. I guess the snake symbolizes evil, so the Virgin Mary tramples it for our peace. Truly, she made me felt really peaceful.
To tell the truth, about a year ago from that time, the doctor said the rest of my mother’s life was about only 3 months, but I didn’t believe him, so I decided to quit my job, and I made healthy food for her every meal. In the end, the doctor withdrew his diagnosis about six months later. After that, the condition of my mother was getting better for a while. That’s why I could travel to Thailand at that time. However, I totally knew the rest of her life wasn’t so long. When I saw the statue of The Virgin Mary, I was reminded of that difficult situation. The reason why I was attracted to The Virgin Mary, and I felt so peaceful was that perhaps because I could see my mother’s spirit in her.
